Welcome To ExSciton

ExSciton nurtures scientific curiosity in Students. When they seek knowledge about the world around them, ExSciton guides them towards a better understanding of countless existing phenomena. At ExSciton, we believe in an ‘engaged learning’ approach where we encourage students to observe their surroundings, ask more and more questions, experiment and communicate their key learnings with their peers. The curriculum at ExSciton is aligned to Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and we integrate a variety of learning methodologies in our classrooms for a better understanding. We have four levels of curriculum designed to fit students from Kindergarten through Middle School. We also prepare our Students for competitive events such as MIT Science bowl, etc. We aspire to create future scientists who will play pivotal roles in changing the world.
